FORMULA

Conjectures from Colin Barker, Jan 03 2016 and Apr 18 2019: (Start)

a(n) = 11001*a(n-2)-10011000*a(n-4)+10000000*a(n-6) for n>10.

G.f.: (1 +11*x -9901*x^2 +889100*x^3 -979100*x^4 +7891000*x^5 -109001000*x^6 +1090110000*x^7 +9990000*x^8 -1100000000*x^9 +100000000*x^10) / ((1 -x)*(1 +x)*(1 -100*x)*(1 +100*x)*(1 -1000*x^2)).

(End)

From Karl V. Keller, Jr., Oct 20 2021 : (Start)

The above conjectures are correct.

a(n) = (10*100^n - 90999*1000^floor(n/2)/100 - 1)/9 for odd n > 4;

a(n) = 111101*1000^(n/2)/100000 for even n > 4. (End)
